Hark! Another hero approaches. Prepare the minions. Get them in line. The dragon’s ransom must never be claimed!
In Dragon’s Ransom, you take on the role of a Dungeon itself, sending waves of minions towards ill-prepared heroes. Link minions to create devastating combos, but beware- the heroes may be fools but they will fight back.
Dragon’s Ransom is a reverse dungeon crawl solitaire & co-operative card game for 1 – 2 players. On your turn you will draw cards from the main deck and play minions to create attack chains. Once they’re built up, play Attack! cards to send your chains rushing forward to attack the heroes. Spending too much time to build the chains and the heroes will strike back, breaking apart your ranks. Defeat all the heroes to win or run out of cards to suffer defeat.

Days of Wonder offer you a new twist on the best-selling Five Tribes game: a Solo Variant!
Designed by Bruno Cathala and Thierry Jolit, Five Tribes Solo is a new way to play the game. Your goal: to overthrow Yazid the First and take his place on the throne. But beware! The path to victory is a harsh one. You will need to convince Yazid’s Council of Viziers, avoid his Assassins, and watch for the Djinns that protects him…
In Five Tribes Solo, you play the game as usual, using the same actions, but against a dummy player whose actions directly affect your decisions. As you progress through the game, you will discover that time is against you, and each move can be a critical one. Do not worry if you lose your first games… as they say, Naqala wasn’t made in a day!

Sylvion is a solo (or two-player cooperative) tower defense card game out from Z-Man Games.
Players build a deck use a drafting system and play cards in their hand by paying for them with other cards. There are animals, trees, and fountains, all at your disposal to help put out the fire. Fire cards are randomly drawn from four piles and are considered a wave attack from the enemy camp. You must defeat the fire cards by playing stronger, more powerful forest cards. When all of the fire cards have been destroyed, your marker must be on a green space to show that you’ve saved the forest. If you are on a fire card, the forest has been burned down.
